Indiana University Researchers Get $1 Million Grant To Study Memes
If we are going to get pedantic, methodology is the study of methods. (Like geology is the study of the geo ~earth)
The word you are looking for is "method"
Ask Slashdot: Why Are Online Job Applications So Badly Designed?
There is absolutely a way to get all the keywords you want onto a resume for the Perl engine and also be honest to a human reader
You could have a section at the end of the resume labeled "keywords" and then put categories in for you proficiency level: guru keywords, master keywords, apprentice keywords and newbie keywords. or any other such arrangement.
I have spent years as a hiring manager and I would be quite impressed if such completeness and honesty showed on a resume.
Finding More Than One Worm In the Apple
It takes a genius to write code that can be understood by an idiot.
Finding More Than One Worm In the Apple
i will go you one further and say that the more open style of braces would have shown the bug quite clearly
if ((err = SSLHashSHA1.update( &hashCtx, &signedParams)) != 0)
if ((err = SSLHashSHA1.final( &hashCtx, &hashOut)) != 0)
// if you always put a brace on the line after the evaluation of an if, and tab in, the nesting will be obvious.

Eh, Mercer Island has been ironically referred to as "poverty rock" since the 60's. It had always been a luxury neighborhood. Try houses in Columbia City that were 25k in 1974 and now list for 600.

Dear Slashdot, stop creating your own content. You suck at it.
Why My Team Went With DynamoDB Over MongoDB
that is getting sick of this content-free, slashdot echo chamber, clickcrack stuff. Hey Slashdot, why do you need whole nuther site to post original articles? And why do those articles make such a deafening sucking sound?
Problem is that I would be interested in a reasoned look at MongoDB v Dynamo but my experience with http://slashdot.org/topic/bi/ is not to waste my time by reading TFA.

Nobody on Slashdot or otherwise will see a kitchen with lasers that show you how to cut fish. The idea is idiotic. The response about the quality of cooking instructions on deh interwebs is surprisingly even more idiotic.

Ask Slashdot: Interviewing Your Boss?
The trick to managing technical people is knowing what you don't know and allowing technical experts do their job without infuriating them with stupid questions.
-- ask some technical questions, make sure at least a few the candidate will not know the answer to. If they fake it rather than saying "I don't know" PASS
-- give a situation to deal with (the server is down) and ask "what do you want me to do?" if it is anything other than "fix it and let me know the details only after you are done" PASS
Ask Slashdot: How Often Do You Push To Production?
Minutely, as soon as the feature compiles.
We are hoping to go to real-time and have developers update Ruby scripts directly on the production server as this will save us the expense of a test environment, but that is going to require porting all our Java code to Ruby. We tried to use jRuby but that is going the wrong direction, so we are starting a new open source project for JOR (java on ruby).
